Hey, I'm shooting a day shot. There's adequate lighting from the sun and if it were completely outdoors, I think I would be fine. However, my character is in a car. I was wondering what were some thoughts as to what I should do to fix the lighting, or if it should be good enough to shoot for a more natural feel.
You should base your exposure on the main subject (the character in the car). But unless you try to balance the lighting and control contrast, it's likely things outside the car will be quite washed out. If you are using negative film, its superior highlight latitude may keep a bit more detail in the highlights, whereas the really bright areas may "clip" on video. In either case, a big part of cinematography is controlling the light.
